Matthieu Ronsse creates paintings that often seem unfinished, comprised of references to old masters, fragments from his private life, or clippings from books on photography and architecture. He challenges the traditional painting method, questioning its qualities of materials, techniques, subject, and history. ‘A Procession of Lobsters’ offers an overview of work that Ronsse creates ‘in situ’: at a petrol station, in the house of a collector, for a catering company, within watchtowers, and elsewhere. Author Maarten Inghels visited all of these locations and spoke extensively with their occupants, as well as with the artist himself, seeking answers as to the changing perception of the work.
